Château Picol

Château Picol, love at first sight, full of charm, beauty and history

Article

Laurence and Marian originally from Ireland, have 3 children and moved to France in 2013 for a change of lifestyle.

We looked at properties in various regions of France to set up our new venture and eventually across this gem, a château in the Vienne Loire region. It was love at first sight, full of charm, beauty and history (given to believe it was built by Queen Victoria for her Parisian dress designer in 1882).

A very warm homely feel to it while having all modern comforts...

While just off the main rod and within 2km of a town with all services, the château is surrounded by 3 Ha of parkland gardens, fish pond and is a haven of peace, tranquility and is very secure. It has a very warm homely feel to it while having all modern comforts its maintains it's original features.

We live close by and are available to facility our clients to enjoy their visit to this region. We have a minibus available for wine tasting, airport or train pickups or transport to golf and restaurants.
